If you prefer staying at home we suggest making a direct donation to these two amazing rescues.

We will be raising money for:

No Kitten Left Behind – MN

We are a small, all-volunteer, foster based rescue dedicated to helping cats and kittens in need. We provide them with any necessary medical care and adopt them into caring and life-long homes. Our rescue provides a stable, loving environment in which these gentle animals can be cared for until we find their forever homes. No Kitten Left Behind – MN is a strong advocate of no-kill and we have recently become a non-profit organization. Donations and foster homes are always needed to continue our mission.

Ruff Start Rescue

We are a foster home-based Non-Profit 501c3, No-Kill dog and cat rescue based in Central Minnesota. We rescue stray, neglected, abandoned, and surrendered dogs and cats as well as ferrets, guinea pigs, rabbits, and other critters. We work very hard to place them in new loving homes. We operate largely through volunteers and donations, relying on social media to stay connected.
